Black Polyimides

Conductive and Non-Conductive Black CP1

Conductive Black CP1 Polyimide is filled with carbon nanoparticles to produce a conductive black polyimide material with lower RF loss than other black and conductive black polyimides. In addition to conductive black CP1, non-conductive black CP1 is available without using a carbon black filler. CP1 is a space-rated colorless polyimide material designed by NASA and further developed by NeXolve.


  • Conductive Black CP1 Polyimide exhibits very high optical density (>4) and light blocking.
  • Conductive Black CP1 Polyimide is useful in applications requiring static dissipation, as it exhibits ESD-level surface resistivity (10^5-10^9 ohms/sq).
  • Conductive Black CP1 polyimide exhibits high emissivity, surpassing 0.80 at 1 mil thickness. Additionally, it can be sprayed and cast into various shapes, using low-temperature curing for solvent removal.
